PBR deluxes are great IMHO. i just put front pads on. the car's records show that rotors and pads were changed by the dealership 30k miles ago. the old pads still had a lot of meat on them but they groaned and shed a lot of dust to boot. i have my original umpteen hole rims with snows on right now and i had given them a thorough cleaning before mounting the snows but the dust is too much to keep up with. the PBR's are very smooooth right of the bat and i believe everything that's been said about them!
